In the last two seasons, the Detroit Pistons didn’t win their eighth game of the season until after Thanksgiving. They are now off to their best start since 2008-2009.

The Pistons picked up their third straight win Wednesday, as they rolled past the Indiana Pacers 114-97 to move to 8-3 on the year. Nine seasons ago, the Pistons were 8-4 to start the season.

Six players were in double figures for the Pistons, led by Tobias Harris‘ 23 points. Reggie Jackson added 18 while Andre Drummond supported with another double-double, going for 14 points and 21 boards.

Friday will bring on the fourth game of a five-game home stretch for the Pistons as they host the Atlanta Hawks at 7pm.

Defense Dominates in Broncos Win

The Western Michigan Broncos earned their sixth win on the season, making them bowl eligible for the fourth straight season, as they knock off the Kent State Golden Flashes in their final home game of 2017.

The defense had three touchdowns on the night for the Broncos, including Darius Phillips 43-yard interception return. Phillips’ pick-six was his fifth career interception return for a score, tying a Division I Bowl Subdivision record. It also extends his FBS record of 12 runbacks by kickoff, punt, interception or fumble return.

Another Bronco continues to climb the Western record books, as senior Jarvion Franklin passed former wide receiver and current Tennessee Titans rookie Corey Davis for second in all-purpose yards, thanks to a 191-yard, 22-carry night and his 51st career rushing touchdown. It comes a week after passing wide receiver and Kalamazoo native Greg Jennings for third.

The Broncos hit the road for their final two contest this season, starting next Saturday with a trip to Dekalb to take on the Northern Illinois Huskies.

Red Wings End Western Canada Trip Tonight in Calgary

The Detroit Red Wings look to earn a sweep in their three-game Western Canada trip tonight as they battle the Calgary Flames.

The Wings have had great play from Martin Frk, who has scored twice and added an assist in their 4-0 win over the Edmonton Oilers Sunday and a 3-2 win the following night against the Vancouver Canucks.

The recent stretch has placed them in third in the National Hockey League’s Atlantic Division tied with the Ottawa Senators, who the Winged Wheels lost to a week ago.

The Flames enter tonight’s contest winning three of their last four, including Tuesday’s loss to Vancouver 5-3.

Face-off is at 9pm.
